For this reason, in the hopes of facilitating cross-party dialogue and...

I grew up in western KY. The state at that time was pretty much a Democrat state, but a lot of local offices were held by Republicans. Most people around us were Southern Baptists (as i was raised), Methodists, or Church of God members. My dad was a coal miner, he operated the...
comedian Sarah Palin. Amazingly, she comes somewhat close to being semi-coherent in this particular stand-up routine. Not only that, but she almost seems to have an understanding (of some sort) of the meaning of a commonly used Latin phrase, helpfully pointing out to the...

making a clear, coherent statement expressing her support for fast food workers in their campaign for a livable wage, followed by right-wing darling, Sarah Palin. I shudder to think that the second woman could have been a heartbeat away from the presidency.
We all just want to improve our country, one way or another. Others might just want to increase military and just, well, fight. Then we, the democrats, want to improve the citizens' lifestyle. With government help and their community.
So what do you think is better?

It's time for Senators and Congresspersons to take a bite of a reality sandwich. Granted, it doesn't taste as good as prime rib, as it's just a couple of pieces of bread made up of leftover scraps, and probably smothered in salad dressing or mayo.
